KidStriders is an elementary incentive program that revolves around walking or jogging a cumulative marathon ending  with a Victory Run at the Grand Blue Mile!

KidStriders 2021-2022

Like many other small non-profits, Iowa Kidstrong is working within its capacity at making a comeback from

the variety of shifts that occurred during the first 18 months of the Pandemic. We are ever grateful for the

interest in our program, for the support throughout our shut down of business as normal, and for your patience

as we get back on our feet in a way that more closely resembles pre-Spring 2020. 


We're going to roll out the cumulative marathon program as we have in the past with a tentative eye on a

KidStriders Victory Run at the Grand Blue Mile in April 2022. (We are hopeful that what needs to happen happens

in order to provide a safe environment for our KidStriders Victory Run event to occur, so please keep doing your part.) 

If your school would like to participate in KidStriders for the 2021-2022 school year, you must sign up here:

Additionally beginning in January 2022, we'll concurrently offer the KidStriders Spring Booster program with monthly themes and activities, each with its own incentive. Registration will be required. Students participating in KidStriders AND completing monthly challenges through March receive a “KidStriders Spirit Week Kit” to celebrate the week of the Grand Blue Mile and the Drake Relays. The “KidStriders Spirit Week Guide” will provide ideas to create your own celebration week too!
